    It's freakin' great! I've been following the Preview Releases, but this final 1.0 release is awesome. I can now open links from other apps and have it open in a new tab instead of a new window. I've been missing that feature since switching from Safari.

    Yeah, I miss that with Mozilla too when I switched from it. The -remote never worked in my firefox but I thought it was just me. :-[

    The -remote option worked for me since 0.9. How do you manage it
    now? I always used a own script:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    URL=`echo $1|tr -d \'\"\)`
    /usr/bin/firefox -remote "openURL($URL, new-tab)"
    The thing is, it does not launch firefox. It just opens a url when it's open.

    That's what we wanted. Instead of a new instant, we want it to open it up in new tab. Even with this command, all it does is open up said URL in a new window but not in tab.

    It also features basic support for GTK icon themes (ie, the default theme in Gnome uses Gnome back/forward/reload/stop/home icons rather than the usual big fluffy green/blue ones)

    Open in a new tab works for me. But i want it to launch firefox if it's not running. When firefox is running, and i click on a link handled by this script it opens the URL in a new-tab.
